Articles by Sunil Deepak on documentary films and film makers

Sunil's note for Documentary Film Makers: I love documentary films and short films. If you are a documentary or short film maker and you would like me to review your film, please write to me at sunil.deepak(at) and send me a link to your film - I am especially interested in reviewing documentary films on the theme of health and disability, on issues related to GLBT and sexuality, and films about India. I can not guarantee that I will write about your film or that I will write only good things about your film, but if I like your work, I can help in spreading news about your film!
